Solar Wind

Me and Biggis went out last Thursday. The Aurora forecast was not expecting much activity until the Friday but clouds and a storm was coming in over the weekend so if we where going to get any Aurora it was Thursday or never.

 

The night was perfectly calm so Lake Kleifarvatn, Iceland was our chose. It started of quietly but around 11pm the show started. It lasted for an amazing 1 hour. Frame after frame we shot. Re-framing and re-positioning is not that common while shooting Aurora because they usually come in short bursts. This time it was different. This is what I consider my best frame from that awesome session.
